Sitting here today, I never thought I would be doing something I have dreamed about for ages. 8 months ago I plucked up the courage to start a blog, and my goodness I am so happy I have.
Having this blog (my little baby) was the best thing I could have ever done. Admittedly I haven’t been as active as I like due to my jobs which take up the majority of my time but I am turning this all around.
I started this blog to showcase my photography work but it has taken a whole new turn and I have taken it down several paths. My blog is a way of expressing who I am and helping others. I get to use this blog as a diary of my life. I can go through it as see how my life was at certain times.
My blog is mainly leaning towards the mental health side of things. I believe people find it interesting to see how other people cope and what they have been through so they know they are not alone. My life has been one big rollercoaster, so many ups, so many down and yet here I am, sharing my story with anyone who wants to read it.
I was scared to start blogging and mostly to start talking about my anxiety. I didn’t know how anyone would react to it or ever read it. After uploading my first post about how anxiety has affected my life, I received so many messages from friends and family telling me how proud of me they were. BUT, the main thing which made me feel confident about blogging these issues was all the other bloggers who were so supportive.
Due to this, I decided to do a YouTube video on my anxiety and how it had been affected my everyday life. All the comments and support from that made me feel like I was not alone.
Twitter is a great place to be able to connect with other bloggers including myself. The community on their is unreal and the amount of support&love is phenomenal. I would not be in the place I am today without all the support of fellow bloggers – lots of love to you all.
Until next time, Lauren x
